Spirituality has to do with us seeking to encourage and enable relationships which are increasingly open, honest, balanced, safe, secure, intimate, vulnerable and integrative. Religiosity has to do with organizing, managing, controlling, systematizing, codifying, ritualizing, inscribing and otherwise expressing as groups our collective awareness of all that transcends us. Addictive people approach religious expressions with attitudes and in ways which often lead to their becoming religious leaders who are preoccupied with religious: fixes, manipulative techniques, legalistic controls, sophisticated rules and regulations, technical judgments, perfectionism, exclusivity, etc. Often spiritual people find themselves drawn into relationships with addictive and religious people, and they become codependent supporters of addictive religiosity without understanding how their spirituality become perverted, rather than refined.
